For a great mix of fashion and entertainment buzz you've got to read Stylephile . Published by Variety, this is the best blog for what's happening style wise in our very own La La Land.

And wasn't that nice of them to say a little something sweet about

The magic of antique jewelry

Last night a friend of mine invited me to examine the two rings she was wearing, both of them Victorian antiques, each with human hair woven in to the surface. The results were strange and beautifully intricate, displaying the kind of meticulous craftsmanship that we so rarely see today.If you agree that they don't make 'em how they used to, then you might enjoy, the online store for Kazanjian & Fogarty, Inc. They carry a variety of fine jewelry pieces from the 19th Century to contemporary, with a focus on signed pieces by the world’s finest jewelers (Van Cleef, Bvlgari, Cartier etc). New items are added to the site each week (upcoming items include diamond earrings by Loree Rodkin and a one-of-a-kind Heidi Klum Collection diamond pendant by Mouawad). But it's the golden oldie antiques that really get me excited.The three pieces above (L-R: Vintage Art Deco diamond ring in platinum, $4,750; Vintage signed David Webb diamond brooch, $5,850; Vintage antique Victorian enamel earrings, $1,250), give you a taste of the treasures you'll find on
